Welcome to English 377: Digital Creative Writing with Professor Rigdon

Tuesdays & Thursdays | 1:30 - 2:45 p.m. | Innovation Hall 327

In this class we'll be learning to deconstruct what you know about what it means to write using digital tools and techniques. Not only will we discuss ways to employ technology in storytelling, we will also consider how technology shapes our own conceptions about what a poem or story can be, and how readers and writers interact with it. To get started, play around on the Language is a Virus site. Look through the different word games you can play, and try some out.
